This 30 year old patient presented with a prior history of having undergone what was described as an unsuccessful FUE hair restoration. He was concerned that few grafts grew, leaving him with unacceptably low density in the transplanted frontal area. He was also bothered by unacceptable thinning in the donor harvest area that followed his procedure. His examination revealed miniaturization confined primarily to the frontal half of the male pattern region. This was associated with punctate scarring absent of hair growth that presumably arose following his original procedure. He underwent a secondary procedure in my office at which time 2090 grafts were obtained using FUE harvesting and planted into the outlined frontal recipient area. The graft harvest was strategic in attempting to avoid the previously depleted “sweet spot” of the occipital donor area so as to prevent any additional apparent thinning. The graft harvest focused primarily in the temple and lower occipital regions, which were untouched at the time of his first procedure. Presented are one year postop photos and immediate graft placement photos. Also shown is the depleted occipital donor harvest site with a #2 short-clip and a zero-guard hair length. Finally, an immediate postop photo of the temple donor harvest area contrasts the small punch openings of this session to the large-punch scars that are located toward the back of the current harvest zone.

Exactly, this is how you repair someone. This is how it should be done. Dr Konior does great work.

 

I envy this result. Life is so unfair.

What a result. 10/10. I've been on finastiride for 2 years now and stopped my hairloss. Once I get a few more years under my belt I'm definitely going to visit Dr. Konior.

I have a very similar situation with scaring from Artas . I have seen multiple FUT scar repairs in this forum. Now my question is , is there any repair for this situation? What do you guys recommend? Smp? Or beard hair into the fue scar ? Is that ethical to transplant hair into a FUE Scar? 

Noted that smp seems to only look good when people keep their hair shaved really low. I like to wear mines longer. Almost a 3-4 guard . 

Also if ur hair is transplanted into a FUE scar. And you get a procedure in future. Could you move that hair around again that you transplanted back in to donor ?

You could, but the graft could be at riak that you move more than once. From your question, beard would be best to move once if your situation warrants it.  You would need to send post pics or send pics directly to get an assessment.

Who did your ARTAS?  Your hair appears not that straight judging by your photo.  Are you mixed race?

Unless things have changed the ARTAS only has FDA approval for straight hair.

Last time I spoke with Dr. Konior back in 2018, I asked him about beard hair in the donor zone. He told me that it does work and is preferable, as the scalp hair is better suited on the top. Dr. Konior is helpful doc, I suggest submitting an online consultation with him and getting some more information with him directly. 

Best wishes, 

Melvin

You need to see an attorney then, if you have not had a full refund.
